The terrorist groups in Eastern Ghouta of Damascus engaged in a fresh round of clashes as many of them have defected and merged in bigger groups.

According to the Arabic-language al-Manar news website, a new wave of tensions is reported among the terrorists in the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus after a new brigade was formed under the name of Rabeta al-Maraj by Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) in collaboration with al-Maraj brigade which was dissolved earlier by Faylaq al-Rahman terrorist group.

Also, Faylaq al-Rahman’s control over the entire parts of the town of Arabayn has intensified tensions. The terrorist group gained control over this region after al-Haq brigade which had defected Ahrar al-Sham joined Faylaq al-Rahman.

Media sources affiliated to the terrorist groups disclosed in July that fifty fighters of a combat battalion of Ahrar al-Sham have defected the group to join Faylaq al-Rahman along with its military equipment.

In the meantime, Ahrar al-Sham’s Spokesman Mohammad Abu Zeid said that only a part of the Battalion has joined Faylaq al-Rahman.
